IT Solutions

The departmental IT administration at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science is responsible for hardware, software and network of the IT infrastructure. It executes the acquisition of PCs, laptops, servers, peripheral devices and enhancements. The IT administration also provides basic and specialized services on its own servers, and they make pre-configured Windows and Linux installations available for students and staff members. Furthermore, it also operates departmental computer labs and provides basic configuration support to staff and professors.


The IT administration is a group of staff and assistants. Though we appreciate the personal contact, we kindly ask our colleagues within the department to send us any questions and requests to itadmin@mathematik*. That way we can assign the task to a colleague, depending on vacation, sick leave, and current workload. You can also speak to us in person on site; on some matters concerning account management this will be necessary. Room 04D05 to 04D09, in the hallway in front of the departmental library. We are easiest to reach between 10 a.m. and noon and between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.
